    That's true. I feel terrible for my family. Politics is the stuff of life and death in many Latin American countries, as you might know.

    But I assure you the corruption is rampant at all levels.

    Now why in Vishnu's name would anyone want to ignore me?

    (That was rhetorical....no response required.)

    To address the topic of the thread: Just back from 5 days in Baja - no problems with gas availability. No problems at all as a matter of fact. About the worst that I can say is there was no premium gas in BOLA or San Ignacio.

    Were discussing the MEXICO FUEL CRISIS right now.

    There's corruption everywhere, but this particular discussion is about the MEXICO FUEL CRISIS and I stated it's likely due to the RAMPANT CORRUPTION IN MEXICO.

    Just returned from a week driving and riding.

    No problems with gas at all. Even the remote places that sell it out of jugs, or their own containers had plenty.

    BOLA, PSF, San Ignacio, San Juanico, Loreto ...

    Gas Protest on 5/04 at the toll road = no toll paid FTW..

    1500 miles in the last week, only 1 Pemex wo premium. What I do like is where the protestors have taken over the toll booths which are now free, honk and thumbs up all around!!

    Glad to hear you all made it. Did you happen to ride any of the trails from San Ig to Mulege over the Gigantes(in either direction) via one of these:
    El Patrocinio - San Pedro, south of Guadalupe T to el Auguajito/San Juan back to Mulege
    La Ballena through Raymondo wash west to Mulege
    Cadeje west ?
    I hear conflicting reports and apparently the water damage from 2012 got worse around Guadalupe

    Anyway, love to hear if there is any dirt bike routes that is not all boulders and cussing for my return from Loreto or Mulege to San Ig

    Gracias

    Ztrab, San Raymundo is good to go but pretty rocky.
    The route from Guadalupe to El Patrocino got really beat up from Odile (saw it first hand) , didn't quite make it over headed east almost two years ago now. Heard a couple guys made it through going west a while back though they got the benefit of all of the hard boulder work we did in the wash outs!

    La Ballena/ San Reymundo/ Mulege is good to go.

    El Patrocinio - San Pedro, south of Guadalupe T to el Auguajito/San Juan back to Mulege - NO BUENO!

    Thanks, it's too bad that section was such a great ride. I'm past my prime and 3-4 hours of boulder hopping might just do me in, though it still chaps my hide to admit it. At least Reymundo is an alternative to Hwy 1 to San Ig. Appreciate the update

    "I have been riding with some early 30's kids, I call them my Bike Concierges. I took one of them up a gnarly box canyon, it had been wet and the moss made one slot too slippery to climb. We were turning around and I was trying to push back and rock up against the slot to get is turned around without getting off when my concierge walked over, picked my front wheel up off the sand and pulled me around 180. Now that's who I wanna ride the No Whimps Trail with, ha.."

    MKJ is just pulling your leg ztrab, lol, I was actually his "concierge" on both of our rides.
    Sometimes we all have to team up just to get through or out! I won't ride twice with riders that only are concerned about themselves.

    So...how about that fuel crises?
